The recent decisions of the Ukrainian parliament have been adopted under unprecedented pressure on MPs; they were intimidated, Viktor Yanukovych, who earlier stated about his legitimacy as president of Ukraine said, RIA Novosti reported.
"This is lawlessness, terror, anarchy and chaos that occurred after these unprecedented decisions taken in parliament through violence against MPs, intimidation, throwing stones at them, they were literally dragged to the Maidan so that they would make an oath there. This cannot be called the parliament work, it is the work of the Maidan," Yanukovych said at a press conference in Rostov-on-Don on Feb.28.
"Under the influence of the strongman and militants of Maidan, the parliament is voting."
"The government, which they called the "Cabinet of victory ", the victory over whom? Victory over the Ukrainian people? But it was supposed to be a government of national unity, of which we spoke, we discussed," Yanukovych recalled.
